Beautiful Pup, Ken. Top clean build and a very nice decent weathering.

I still have to start my WNW Pup - I'm kinda holding out in the hope somebody (hint, hint) will release decals of the colourful Pup I modelled back in the early 90's, courtesy of Eduard and Blue Rider.
Maybe I should have put these pics on the nostalgia board - however I have little nostalgia for the dreadful flash and thick plastic of early Eduard!! How we have progressed over the last couple of decades!
This was a training machine based at Netheravon in 1918.

Well, there's always the painting option if you like that sort of thing

Your Diamond Pup is a Masterpiece! Considering just how challenging building the kit was I would Say Spectacular!

Sandy, I remember this little beauty from wwi-models.org!  Loved it then, love it now.  Inspired me to buy the Eduard kit back then, but before I could build it, Aeroclub released the injected version of the old vac kit.  Much better than the Eduard kit.
Cheers,
Bud
